The University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine's Department of Pathology has compiled a series of case studies to help both students and instructors. In this particular case, a 71-year-old man was admitted with âacute renal failure with heavy proteinuria following a several month history of ill-defined renal diseaseâ. The patientâs detailed history, which includes creatinine and urine protein levels is found in the âPatient Historyâ section. The following tests were performed on the patient: renal core biopsies, bone marrow biopsy, renal ultrasonography, and an abdominal CT scan. Those test results are all included in the case study to aid in your understanding of the patientâs diagnosis. The âFinal Diagnosisâ section provides the official final diagnosis of the patient and a detailed description provided by the contributing doctors. This is an excellent resource for students in the health sciences to familiarize themselves with using patient history and laboratory results to diagnose disease. It is also a helpful site for educators to use to introduce or test student knowledge of renal pathology.
